We have had a lovely afternoon, designing and creating pictures based on the title, ‘A Spring Garden’ for a competition run by The Rotary Club of Retford. We chose which medium to use and focused on creating what we thought a garden during Spring may look like. Fingers crossed we might have a winning entry.
This week we learnt about the structure of volcanoes and recreated one using sand, wax and water. It was great fun!
In English we have read a poem called ‘The River’. We identified the different poetic features, for example similes, metaphors, personification and adjectives. We will be performing the poem over the next week and will be posting it on here!
Maths has been quite challenging this week, learning how to multiply a two-digit number by a one-digit number using the expanded method. We all worked incredibly hard and had a positive growth mind-set, overcoming the learning barriers we faced.
This week Ava was the ‘Champion of the Week’. She has worked very hard at home to create booklets about maths and volcanoes, which she brought in to school to share with us. In lessons Ava always tries her best and has worked extra hard in maths this week. Well done Ava!
This week saw the introduction of our new ‘House Teams’. Children have been divided into four different houses: Diamond, Emerald, Amethyst and Garnet. They earn House Points both in and out of lessons, and these points are counted on a Friday morning. The House with the most points wins a trophy for the week. The winner this week was Diamond House. Well done!
